Cantadores Repentistas

Music of the world

The worthy representatives of this popular poetic art of the Brazilian Nordeste comparable to that of troubadours and bards of the Mediterranean Middle Ages, which has also influenced modern groups in our regions, such Massilia Sound System, Fabulous Troubadours or Dupain. They demonstrate the strength of singing, jousting, intellectual exhibition; their repertoire is based on the "desafio", the improvised and versified poetic challenge; they are accompanied by the viola, a guitar with five or six double strings. The booklet contains many translations and indications on the technique of versification.
